  PhotoSwizzle Plugin Filter 2
Filter Name:   Drop Shadow
File Name:   NVRPH2.8BF
Description:   Adds a shadow to a selection. Only pixels outside the selection are modified.

Controls:  
Name Type Range Default
Angle slider 0...359 315
Distance slider 0...100 10
Focus slider 0...100 75
Intensity slider 0...100 50
Color color picker color picker black
Preview check box n/a unchecked
Save Control Settings drop down list box n/a n/a

  Angle: The angle in degrees at which the shadow is projected relative to the selection, based on a full cicle of 360 degress. 0 is directly to the right and as the angle increases the shadow moves radially counterclockwise relative to the selection.

Focus: Controls the amount of dispersion of the shadow.

Distance: Sets the distance of the shadow center from the selection center. The maximum distance (100) is 25% of the diagonal size of the full image.

Intensity: Controls the intensity of the shadow relative to the image pixels that it is drawn over.

Color: Selects the shadow color.


  PhotoSwizzle Plugin Filter 3
Filter Name:   Button Maker
File Name:   NVRPH3.8BF
Description:   Creates a variety of effects designed to make an image look like a button for web pages. This has most of the features of the BorderMania rectangular filters but it extends the range of all effects to cover the entire image and adds a few new features.

Controls:  
Name Type Range Default
Width slider 0...100 50
Frame Width slider 0...100 50
Light Angle slider 0...359 310
Light Intensity slider 0...100 50

  Width: Selects the overall width of the modified areas of the selection as a percentage of the selection dimensions. The maximum width of the modified area is half of the shorter of the selection width or height, so that at maximum the modified areas meet at the center of the selection.

Frame Width: If the Frame check box is checked, this controls the width of the flat zone component of the frame. Width is a percentage of the modified area selected by the Width control, so at maximum (100) the flat zone covers the entire modified area. If the Frame check box is not checked, this has no effect.

Light Angle: Controls the apparent angle of incidence of light on the image. based on a full cicle of 360 degress. 0 is directly from left to right and as the angle increases the direction moves radially counterclockwise.

Light Intensity: Controls the amount of lightening and darkening of the modified areas. At minimum (0) no change is made to the image. As the intensity increases the modified areas are shifted closer to pure white or black.

Depth: Controls shading intensity in a linear relationship to the distance from the edge of the selection.

Push: Makes the selection look like a pushed button. The entire selection is offset down by a percentage of the selection dimensions and the outer edges are darkened to look like a shadow around the button on all sides, as though the button is partially recessed below the surface of a keyboard. At minimum (0) this has no effect.

Tint: Selects the intensity of the color selection that is applied to the modified areas.

Image: When checked, the original image content is used as the basis for the modified areas. When not checked, the color selection is the used as the basis for the modified areas instead, and the original image content is discarded.

Frame: When checked, the modified areas are split into three parts, an outer raised edge, a central flat zone and an inner sunken edge, to give the appearance of a three dimensional frame sitting on top of the image. When not checked, the modified areas are shaded to make the entire selection appear raised above the image plane with the outer edges at the lowest elevation and the center at the highest elevation.

Bevel: When checked, the modified areas are shaded at a constant value to give them a beveled look. When not checked, the modified areas are shaded with a gradient to give them a rounded look.

Outline: When checked, a black outline one pixel wide is drawn around the the outermost edge of the image selection.

Notch Corners: When checked, a single pixel at each corner is made transparent. This has no effect if not checked, the image has no transparency layer or the transparency layer is locked.

  Width: Selects the overall width of the faceted areas of the selection as a percentage of the selection dimensions. The maximum width of the modified area is half of the shorter of the selection width or height, so that at maximum the modified areas meet at the center of the selection.

Depth: Controls how much of the original image content is compressed into the facets as a percentage of the smaller of the selection height or width.

Tint: Selects the intensity of the color selection that is applied to the entire image. At minimum (0) this has no effect.

Light Angle: Controls the apparent angle of incidence of light on the image. based on a full cicle of 360 degress. 0 is directly from left to right and as the angle increases the direction moves radially counterclockwise.

Light Intensity: Controls the amount of lightening and darkening of the faceted areas. At minimum (0) no change is made to the image. As the intensity increases the modified areas are shifted closer to pure white or black.

Color: Selects a color that is applied to the entire image. The intensity of the color is controlled by the Tint control.

Bevel: When checked, the faceted areas are shaded at a constant value to give them a beveled look. When not checked, the modified areas are shaded with a gradient to give them a rounded look.

Contrast: When checked, the light intensity is increased to higher contrast. When not checked, the light intensity is at normal contrast.
